My Awesome Weekend

18 May

Happy Monday!  For the first time in awhile, I’m not posting a training recap today.  Because my spring race is OVER!  More on that to come soon…but for now, I want to share some bits and pieces of my awesome weekend.

It all started on Friday night, with a delicious solo sushi dinner and early bedtime.


My alarm went off VERY early Saturday AM and I drove into Brooklyn to meet Kara and run the Brooklyn Half Marathon.  Race recap coming this week, but spoiler:  I PR’ed AND went Sub-2! Boom.



After the race, Kara and I met up with my cousin and some other friends and enjoyed Coney Island lagers.  It was only appropriate!


After a shower and nap, boyfriend took me out for a celebratory dinner.  We went to Mercato Kitchen in Massapequa Park and I got the Insalata Mercato with broiled salmon on the side.  It was perfection.


After dinner, we snuggled up to watch a movie, but I was so exhausted and passed out by 8:30pm.  Oops.  After a solid 10 hours of sleep, I woke up, struggled to get out of bed, and realized it was #PancakeSunday!  Boyfriend and I have been slacking on our pancake game lately, so I was happy to bring it back this Sunday.  I whipped up come apple pancakes using apples, almond meal, eggs, banana, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.  And drizzled them with REAL maple syrup.  Amazing.


After breakfast, I did something I’ve never done before.  I went for a massage.  My old roommate gifted me a massage for my birthday (thanks, Goof!) so I figured the day after Brooklyn was the perfect time to cash in.  You guys, I was SO right.  A full-body massage felt absolutely amazing for my sore muscles! 🙂

The Old Bethpage Village Restoration is also home to a farm, which was MY favorite part of the visit.  The farm has a CSA and weekly farm stands starting in June and I can’t wait to take advantage of that.






Although I was already happy as a pig in mud [get it? ;)], we then went to the Bethpage street fair, got boyfriend’s niece some new adorable bows and then went out to lunch.  I mean, seriously…how cute is she?


After we all ate, boyfriend and I topped off the day with grocery shopping and some ice cream on the couch!

And of course, Rocky supervised the ice cream eating…6

All in all, one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time.  I’m a happy lady.  Bring it on, week!

How was YOUR weekend?  Run a race?  Eat ice cream?  Tell me about it.
